Hi,

I have a mac address filter on my wifi connection and it seems that the wifi mac address of my Archos 70b Xenon changes after reboot.

There's no update to my android version.

How can I make the MAC address static?

 

Thanks,

sheepk.

Hello,

I have never heard of changing MAC addresses, this should normally not happen in the system.

I have few questions below to better understand what is happening...

Do you get a new address at each reboot or can you see a kind of pattern where the same MAC comes back after a few reboots ? Are the addresses random, do they keep the same vendor ID part (six first digits) ? normally it should be 00:16:DC for ARCHOS according to that page

Do you have a sticker on the tablet or on the product packaging that mentions the WiFI MAC address ? Is that an address value that you sometime get after a reboot ?

Cheers.

Actually it seems the MAC address changes when I shut down and restart the tablet (also when the battery is down, which is the same scenario)

You're right, the 6 first digits remain the same, but are not these you quote. Mine starts with 00:08:22.

There is no sticker or anything on the package or device mentioning the MAC address.

 

Cheers,

SK.
